LAPIS LAZULI is a sodium aluminum silicate with an isometric crystal system and a hardness of 5 to 6. In Latin, the name means “blue stone. The finest Lapis Lazuli comes from Afghanistan.
Lapis was used to entomb and decorate the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt. As a stone of royalty and spirituality, it was unsurpassed. It still carries the vibration of the inner King or Queen that lies buried in each of us. Lapis activates the psychic centers at the third eye, facilitating enhanced intuition and access to spiritual guidance. It is a stone of visionary awareness, bringing new information to the mind in images rather than words. It enhances intellectual ability, making one a better learner and teacher. It is a stone of truth and a stimulating influence to the throat chakra. Lapis is a stone of initiation as well- a catalyst for a mystical journey to higher awareness. Lapis is often particularly attractive to individuals with past-life connections to ancient Egypt, and meditating with the stone can assist them in recovering memories of those past lives, aiding evolution in the current incarnation. Lapis Lazuli works well with Moldavite, Alexandrite, Oregon Opal, Turquoise, Rhodochrosite, Sugilite, Chrysoprase, Pietersite, Rhodonite and Larimar. Guardianite aids by providing protection in the inner realms.
